Question For Players, What Racquet do you play with?

Currently i am using a 5.2 wilson hammer, but i will probably change it to a lighter one in the next few mohths.

Which racquet do you guys use?

My favorite racquet to play with is the Prince Graphite Classic Oversize (the one with the old paint job and leather grip, made famous buy Agassi before he signed with Head), I still have a few of them I use... And I believe they still sell them. I have like 7 of the Prince Classics... and I will buy more of them if I hear they are going t stop making them.

I also own:
3 Yonex Super RQ 700 Ti
2 Yonex Super RQ 300 Long
2 Yonex Super RQ 500 Long

But like I said I like my old trusty Prince I grew up playing with best... I guess I bought all those Yonex to support Martina!

I break a lot of racquets, so I'm constantly buying more... I want to check into getting a Head model if I can find one that compares to the play I get out of my Prince.

I use Prince Triple Threat Graphite OS. I love it. I am getting another TT series racquet, not sure which one.

I live in WI and today I played tennis outside! It was 50 degrees here! How awesome is that??

I use a Babolat Pure Control. My last raquet was a Hyper Hammer 6.3 (the one Serena uses, but it was overzised mine).
With this Babolat I can hit the ball really, really hard and it gets in. With the previous raquet lots of balls weren't being so controlled, and the raquet was very light.

In the future I'm looking forward to a 5.2 Wilson Hammer, the one Lindsay uses

I use a Wilson Hammer 6.3 (midplus) , the same as Serena, only she has oversize. But I have very stiff strings for more control
